Kerela went on to lift their sixth Santosh trophy football title, one of India’s oldest and reputed football championships, by defeating 32 times winner Bengal in a thrilling final at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on Sunday.

Following a 2-2 outcome at the end of regular 90 minutes and extra time thereafter, Kerela went on to hold onto their nerves as the team netted in 4 kicks in reply to Bengal’s 2 in the tie-breaker.

The hero of the tie breaker was goalkeeper V Mithun who put up a stellar performance.

Kerela last won the Santosh trophy way back in 2004 when they defeated Punjab 3-2 with an extra time goal in New Delhi.
